Having a reputation as the toughest, hardest-fought rugby league matches played anywhere in the world, the State of Origin series have been held for more than 25 years. Players are selected to play for the state in which they played their first senior football, hence the name ‘state of origin’.
Only one of the 2019 games in the best-of-three series will be held at Sydney’s ANZ Stadium, where more than 80,000 devoted NRL fans will encourage their favourite team. As the last game in the series, it is also likely to be the decider! With so many Queenslanders recently retired and a changing on the guard, do the NSW Blues have what it takes to take the crown?
With a convenient location near Circular Quay Train Station, skip the queues and jump on a train from Olympic Park back to your hotel room. The Russell Boutique Hotel in Sydney will be delighted to welcome fans and attendees to this exceptional sporting event.
